Go big or something

I started this with a 9 degree wedge ruler:


I don't know how it's going to turn out, which may mean it turns out living in a box instead of being finished. I have a good feeling about it so far though! The plan is 80"x80" and about 5 circles. This is the biggest of the five, about 45" across.


I also got this idea that I should try designing fabric again and I entered a design in the Fabric 8 competition at Spooflower. I would be pretty excited to make the semifinals and if I do you'll definitely know because I'll start begging you to vote for my design (but in a really charming and not embarrassing way. promise.)

I also hear tell that I'm going to be a guest on Mark Lipinski's podcast "Creative Mojo" on Wednesday 12:20-ish pm PST. We've talked on the phone twice and he's already called me "sweetie" a dozen times. I can't wait.

You have a wonderful eye and sense of color. Congratulations on the design and the lovely circles as well as being on Mojo. Will there be a podcast of your show segment?

I think the fabric design is great! Good luck with it.

I'm interested to see what comes of the circle quilt.

Thanks everyone, you are so encouraging! The podcast is now cancelled, I think Mark is feeling a bit overwhelmed. I'll let you know when it happens for real!

I hope the podcast gets rescheduled! Love the wedge quilt and also the fabric design -- those rockets are awesome.
